Best method to unzip file

heliohelio FrancePosts: 32New Users @
in my application i would like to realise that :
- unzip a file with menu File - Open
- work with a file inside zip file

what is the best method ?

copy file in temporary directory, unzip, work with file inside, display data and delete after. But it implies to do this everytime...

Thank you

    This isn't that hard. There are various libraries for zipping and unzipping files. You can use a raw C library or one built for Objective-C. Try googling "Objective-C Zip library". When I needed to do this I googled it, looked over a couple of libraries, and picked one. I'm not at my Mac now and I don't remember which one I used, but as I say it's not rocket science.
